I've always heard that in Paradise Hotel Sverige and it didn't make sence that they salute each other with "skor". Why do they say "skor" before drinking... Now I know :)

Notice that we don't use this to say 'thanks' in Swedish, it's only for toasts.

Bowl! ... uh... as in... let's go bowling? :D

And then you realize it's related to English "skull". Brain bowl.

...Den röda drycken åkte ner... nu kan jag inte se nåt mer.

Does this have to be 'cheers,' or can it be 'here's to you' or 'health'?

It's cheers, or it's a bowl. The English word skull shares etymological roots with the later sense.
